Where was I? Oh yes, the hair. This hair originally had no morphs or breast slider compatibility at all, and the shape was grosser than gross. I wrestled with the mesh quite a bit, and ended up adding morphs and breast slider compatibility and making it fit the head and gave it some lovely shiny textures (and some matte ones for all of you EA purists). Long story short, I messed with the way it sits on the head, gave it some better textures, and added morphs and slider compatibility. I think that the mesh looks better, but that is arguable because I'm extremely biased as I spent a horrifying amount of time staring at this very mesh trying to make it not suck. Whether you want my version or any version of this at all is up to you, but hey, I think it looks really good, and I'm actually using it in one of my files, and I think its dang lovely. Downsides are the minor transparency issues (brown) and potentially the animation (red and control), but keep in mind that those are not poses meant for flattering hair animation whatsoever. Oh also, you can see where I REALLY wrestled with the mesh in the blonde image. There is a huge horrible jagged piece of mesh just above the shoulder.
This hairstyle's name is based on Give Your Heart A Break by Demi Lovato. What can I say? Those Disney Girls' producers know what they're doing. Its pretty great. Also, I love her voice.
Click to enlarge(just to be clear though, I don't take pictures that show off how great the hair is, I try to show the good and the bad in my previews so that people know what they're getting. The two versions animate very differently, and mine just happens to throw a slight fit at certain angles like MOST hairs. At least you know what you're putting in your game this way):
This mesh is 7,898 polygons in LOD0, and 5,504 polygons in LOD1 (Some people might say that my version actually makes things worse, because the original LOD0 has an identical polycount, and the original LOD1 is about 2,000 polygons less, but I can explain. The original looked HORRIBLE in character menus, which is what LOD1 is used for, so I had to make it higher poly). Most everyone should be able to run it, claps for SkySims for making it so low poly, I'm actually very impressed.
*This hairstyle is available for teen-elder females. I'm sorry, no child version. Its too ridiculous a hair, and I can't stand to look at this mesh in a meshing program for any longer.*
This hairstyle is compatible with fat morphs and breast sliders.

DISCLAIMER: I didn't mesh this. I DID convert it, make all the bone assignments, and make fat morphs AND thin morphs for all of you skinny girls and phat girls, and I gave it the textures that I made. SkySims made the original shape that this is based on, but without their work, this wouldn't have been possible (but had they worked harder, none of it would have been necessary).
